The Wayland-Cohocton and Dansville Central Schools have opened discussion for the merger of football teams for the two districts.
Merging the two teams would allow them to pool resources, and field a full team, with substitutes where needed. Both schools are relatively small, and have had to recruit to field a full team during the busy fall sports season when several sport teams compete for players. The merger would be at both the Varsity and Junior Varsity level, and, if approved by both schools and Section V, would be implemented in September.
Both schools will hold public forums. with presentations from coaches and school administrators. The Wayland-Cohocton public forum is scheduled for Tuesday, July 13, at 6:00 p.m. in the new Wayland-Cohocton Performing Arts Center.
The Dansville Central School forum is scheduled for Wednesday, July 14, at 6:00 p.m. in the Dansville High School gymnasium.
Both school superintendent offices are open to answer questions and received comments. Wayland-Cohocton’s superintendent office phone is 213-4303 and the place to ask questions and leave questions at Dansville Center is 335-4000, extension 2300. The two public forums next Tuesday and Wednesday are open to players, community members and any other interested persons.
